Gorgeous locket in a shape of a heart with a crystal flower motive. The piece has a puppet and two parrots as pendants in its lower section. The heart has fine engraved details on front as well as its back side. The locket opens from the side and allows the storage of small items inside; the piece has a ring for a lace. Reliquary lockets were treasured by their owners as souvenirs of pilgrimages, used as amulets and talismans, and given to the images of favorite saints as votive offerings. Lockets were used as devotional items to inspire and comfort believers. During Colonial Times these lockets evolved into a unique genre of devotional jewelry and artistic expression. Please notice that the price includes FREE USPS Shipping!
